“London's great, Curzon House is not”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2004

Two friends & I traveled for three weeks throughout Europe and the Curzon House Hotel was the first stop on our journey. I’m just happy to say that our hotels’ qualities did improve from there on. We stayed in a triple-room for five nights; it was a decent size, we were lucky it had a nice little balcony off of the window with nice views of the quiet little street and a big English garden across from us. Those were about its only redeeming qualities.

The beds weren’t too comfortable and didn’t seem very clean. Another fairly big issue was with the bathroom. They were public ones located on each of the floors, and we were lucky to be located right next to one… so it should have (in my mind) been fairly easy to access. This was not the case. In the mornings, you would hear the bathroom door opening & shutting but each time you went to check on it, it was occupied. It was always occupied. The toilet paper also seemed to run out on a regular basis, not always being replenished in time. Also, the one day we were there, someone left the shower running for hours, flooding the floor, which was a pleasant addition to our day.

I did attempt to eat breakfast the one morning there, but traveling down to the lower floor for some stale bread and instant coffee wasn’t worth the effort, especially with the uber-crowded conditions of the kitchen, leaving no open seating or even standing room.

The staff was unhelpful, composed completely (that I saw) of young people who were completely apathetic to any of our needs. I’m pretty sure they were receiving free lodging there but being forced to sit behind the reception desk as payment for it.

I absolutely loved the city of London but needless to say was quite happy to move onto our next city & next hotel without a doubt. Though the rooms were an okay rate for this city, I’m sure that somewhere nicer does exist for that amount. Oh, and did I mention the cockroach?...

Thank you for your feed-back.

We are sorry for our ancient team which was really unfriendly and terrible.
Fortunatelly we changed all of them and our chambermaids do a really
good job.
We don't have anymore cockroach what is already a good thing!!
Then as regards the communal showers and toilets, we are sorry but that
depends which room you've selected! We have rooms full en-suite, and others basic.
You were in a basic.
Our prices are ones of the lower, but we offer a really good service.
Hope to welcome you now for a better journey!

I stayed in many youth hostels and that the worst place ever... I witnessed a big fight between the owner's son and a long-term guest because he forgot to pay something about the room charges. My room was too much noisy, I didn't sleep for all my stay. My room was next to the TV room and I was told that my room was quiet and well located. The staff is moody and not at all helpful. DON'T STAY THERE !!!

I loved Curzon house! The guests and staff are wonderful. Made so many friends. The Curzon curse will get you and you will never want to leave. The friendly common areas make it easy to meet people. The sheets and bathrooms are clean, my bed was so comfortable, the biggest thing to me. Muffin the cat is beautiful. Its an old building thats needs some work but most buildings do in London, so don't knock it people. I think it adds character.Thanks for a great stay Curzon and I look forward to coming back one day! xxxx Ha ha!
